  • Get there in plenty of time for the sunset, then you can find a parking spot in the lots right by the rock. There's a bit of a climb to get up into the Hole, and then you can grab yourself a seat on.....  more

  • Awesome hike for just about anyone! You cannot miss coming here if you are in the Phoenix area. Hiking was a bit scary as we ascended and descended the Hole as it was steep near the top, but we were careful of how we placed our feet on the rocks and did not slip at all. I noticed that many others were confidently climbing in sandals and thongs. A relatively short climb. Nice views of the city and valley. You can see Phoenix and also the airport tower with planes approaching the airport to land. Bring your cameras for great photos. The trail was fairly busy on a Sunday late afternoon. We found parking in the closest lot although every space was full and many people were walking in from other nearby lots. Although the lots are small, we just waited a few minutes for someone to leave as people are always coming and going. Easy in and out, close to the freeways.
  • This is a great park. The hike is moderate only because it's not a lengthy climb. The views are well worth the effort. This is not wheelchair accessible but the view even from the parking and picnic areas is stunning. Saw several families with young kids make the climb just fine. I'm disappointed that some idiots have chosen to desecrate the rock by sticking their gum on it. Shame on you! Respect the beauty of nature so you preserve it for others to enjoy too!
